Learn 284 words in a month #7 The hard-working dentist

There are three challenges today, for the same ten words.

The easiest one, but good for spelling, is to find the words in the wordsearch below, the second one is to fit each of the ten words into this story about a dentist and the third is to illustrate the story and send it to me as an attachment to the address below, then I can use it here.

COMPANION, GEOTHERMAL, PREREQUISITES, UNLIKELY, CAREER, EXTRACTING, OVERTIME, SUSPICIOUS, PREDICT, TREMENDOUS

It seemed a bit  1___________ when a dentist in Liverpool starting claiming payment from the government  for  2 ___________ a 3  ___________  number of teeth.

Normally you can use statistics to 4 ___________ how many hours of 5 ___________ will be worked in a month and it is 6 ___________ that the number would suddenly increase dramatically.

The hours which he claimed to have worked were investigated.  What he spent his money on was also queried, and it was found that his son needed extra money to study the  7___________ activity near the Italian volcano, Etna.  The son was hoping to go there with a 8 ___________ from his geology course.  Naturally, there would be a few 9___________ to pay for, and the travel costs.

However, it makes you wonder whether too many teeth were taken out, in the effort to help the youngsters to go on their trip.  If so, the dentist was endangering his  10___________, but we can give him the benefit of the doubt.  Perhaps there was a long list of people in that area waiting for dental work to be done.
